Summer Berry Platter

Don't Forget to Share this Post!

I was selected recently to be a #MorrisonsMum and hubs and I went to our nearest Morrisons supermarket to buy the food for our Bank Holiday Monday Family BBQ, I promised I would share all the recipes, so here is my recipe for Summer Berry Platter.

It’s not really a recipe though is it, but rather a way to present some fresh tasty summer berries to have as a dessert at BBQs and picnics. I prepared mine in advance and placed into a large foil container with a lid (you know, like the take-away containers) so that meant I could keep it in the fridge until we were ready to have dessert. Would be great for taking with you to a family potluck!

Costings…

The cost of the fruit in this platter was as follows: strawberries – £1.69, raspberries – 99p, blackberries – £2, blueberries – £2 (these were 2 for £3) and red grapes – £2. Total £7.68. Not cheap, I know, but berries always seem to be very expensive. The fruit was all really juicy and sweet though, which was a nice surprise as sometimes you can get a nasty shock with sour berries!
